sf6 Gas Mixture Construction equipment

SF6 is widely used as an insulating and arc quenching gas in medium and high voltage transformers. As equipment ages, it is being repaired or replaced with more efficient equipment which typically uses 1/3 the quantity of SF6. This creates a need to recover the SF6 for recycling or disposal.

  • Sulfur hexafluoride - Wikipedia

    Sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) or sulphur hexafluoride (British spelling), is an extremely potent and persistent man-made and naturally occuring greenhouse gas that is primarily utilized as an electrical insulator and arc suppressant. It is inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable, and non-toxic. SF 6 has an octahedral geometry, consisting of six fluorine atoms attached to a central sulfur atom.
